If you’re looking for restaurant recommendations for a ladies’ lunch or catch up date in Denver, try these fun spots that are perfect for such an occasion. If the weather permits, many of these picks have outdoor seating for some sunshine and people watching.
Udi’s Bakery and Cafe (multiple locations)
Both locations in Denver proper fill up quickly at lunch, but the food is worth it! Grab some seats outside or at the bar and enjoy a glass of wine and their hummus platter. If you’re there during a meal, their sandwiches are gourmet and flavorful. I love the falafel sandwich or cobb sandwich. And spring for the sweet potato fries–they’re fresh and worth it.
Izakaya Den on South Pearl Street
This newly renovated sister restaurant of Sushi Den is a little more trendy and upbeat. Grab a table upstairs, where the decor is modern and beautiful. The roof retracts open when the weather is nice, making the ambiance even more inviting. Split some hot sake and a couple of hand rolls. The house salad is also delicious if you’re wanting to keep it a light meal.
Solera on Colfax
This cute spot is on East Colfax and serves up some delicious, eclectic food. Grab seat in the bar, dining room or outside in their garden. They serve delicious cured meats and cheeses, and their tapas plates are perfect for sharing. You must try their house sangria.
Caveau Wine Bar on 17th Street
This spot is right in the heart of Uptown, east of downtown Denver. They offer tasty bar bites like crispy brussels sprouts and pancetta wrapped dates. Both their larger plates and flatbreads are ideal for sharing and their wine list is extensive and reasonably priced.
House of Commons tea room on Platte Street
Finally, the House of Commons tea room is perfect for a girls-only lunch. Their sandwiches are gourmet and fresh and the interior of the restaurant is quaint and inviting. They serve daily quiches and soups, along with a satisfying salad menu. You could also reserve a table for proper afternoon tea. They definitely won’t disappoint you here.
